LAND ROVER 88 SERIES ONE EARLY DIESEL GREEN
This is the sale of my much loved series one, I bought it about 5 years ago. This is one of the first few hundred diesels to be produced in 1957 and was registered in December of that year. The previous owner bought her in 2002, prior to that it had been restored and still looks good today, the chassis is as good as any Ive seen but the rear cross member is a later replacement as any enthusiast will notice. The bulkhead has had some welding done in the past and it looks like part of the restoration was to replace all the ball joints, bushes, springs etc etc and it still feels as tight as new. The canvas roof was attacked by some aggressive seagulls and unprofessionally repaired (see photo). I did change the gearbox to a series 3 as the gear box it came with was noisey but I still have it and it comes with the sale. I always assumed its a later engine too but I will do some research and update later, it does smoke a bit going up a gradient, may be an injector or the pump timing slightly out but it sounds sweet ant it totally reliable. The first three serial numbers are 116 indicating a diesel 88 for the home market, A series 111 engine is indeed fitted. It had its number plate transfered in 1984. A bit more history is that she was dispatched from the factory to Bradford in 1957, colour was green and after doing a bit of research I would just like to add how rare these models are. Out of the 25,944 series 1 88, s produced only 2353 were diesel, out of the cars that went abroard or are now scrapped there can't be that many left.
